**5 YEAR WARRANTY INCLUDED**
With its top spec smart TV and a picture to match, the Sony BRAVIA X81 is a class winner.
Sony 4K HDR Processor X1 for superb picture control
With Sony’s X1 processor at its heart, this Sony 55 inch TV delivers the very best from 4K HDR images. The processor enhances all aspects of the image, including colour, contrast and clarity, to give optimised depth and realism. Working with the TRILUMINOS PRO display, colours are natural and authentic, helping the TV deliver ‘real world’ colour.
A smoother image with Motionflow XR
Sony’s Motionflow XR tech keeps motion smooth, without looking artificial. Getting the perfect balance between blur-free images and natural movement, Motionflow XR gives a cinematic sense of realism.
X-Balanced speakers for sonic clarity
Designed to enhance both the sound and style of this Sony TV, X-Balanced speakers use a unique design to enhance the clarity of speech and music, whilst keeping the cabinet sleek and slim. For the best in cinema sound, the sound is also compatible with Dolby Atmos audio.
The Sony BRAVIA X81KU detects objects within the room and intelligently adapts the sound. Soft furnishings, such as heavy curtains can dull the room’s sound, for example, so the Sony optimises the sound to compensate for this. Just as it does to overcome any obstacles that may be in the way of the TV – such as a coffee table.
Works with BRAVIA CAM*
The optional BRAVIA CAM (extra cost option), is the innovative new camera that does so much more than video calls. BRAVIA CAM recognises where viewers are sitting and optimises the picture and sound to suit. It also facilitates the use of gesture control. All this plus it still functions with your TV to make it the ultimate device for video calls.
*Gesture control and auto optimisation function due later in 2022
Using Google’s world-class interface, Google TV makes accessing this Sony TV’s smart features a breeze. Customise your home screen with the apps you use the most, enjoy recommendations, curate your movie nights and even add to your watchlist via your smartphone – Google TV makes sense of Smart TV. You can also access the Sony’s picture, sound and other TV settings – keeping all you need under one ‘roof’.
**This Sony BRAVIA TV features the catch-up TV services
Hands-free voice control your TV
Featuring Google Assistant built-in, this Sony TV effortlessly becomes part of your Google/Android home network. The built-in mic lets you search, hands-free. If you prefer to use a different platform, the Sony is compatible, too. Apple AirPlay and Homekit compatibility makes it possible to integrate with your Apple system. Support for Amazon Alexa devices also means you can voice control via your existing Alexa device.
Enjoy the latest smart TV tech, with the Sony BRAVIA X81KU
4K HDR Processor X1
Our powerful processor uses advanced algorithms to cut noise and boost detail. With an even clearer 4K signal, everything you watch is closer to 4K quality, full of life-like colour and contrast.
Our TVs with a wide colour gamut and unique TRILUMINOS PRO algorithm can detect colour from saturation, hue and brightness to reproduce natural shades in every detail. You'll enjoy colours that are closer to those seen in the real world.
4K X-Reality Pro
See glorious 4K pictures, rich with real world detail and texture, exclusively powered by our 4K HDR processor X1. Images filmed in 2K and even HD are upscaled close to 4K levels of detail by 4K X-Reality PRO using a unique 4K database.
Enjoy smooth and sharp details even in fast-moving sequences with Motionflow XR. This innovative technology creates and inserts extra frames between the original ones. It compares key visual factors on successive frames, then calculates the split second of missing action in the sequences. Some models also include black-frame insertion for a blur-free and truly cinematic look.
Auto Low Latency Mode
With Auto Low Latency Mode in HDMI 2.1, BRAVIA recognises when a console is connected and powered on, and automatically switches to low latency mode. You'll enjoy smoother, more responsive gameplay – vital for fast-moving, high-intensity games.
Auto HDR Tone Mapping
With Auto HDR Tone Mapping the HDR settings will be optimised instantly during your PS5 console’s initial setup. Your PS5 automatically recognises individual BRAVIA TV models and selects the best HDR setting for your TV accordingly. So even in high contrast scenes, you’ll see the crucial details and colours in the brightest and darkest parts of the screen.
Designed to complement the sound quality and slimness of the TV with its unique new shape, our X-Balanced Speaker drives movies and music with clear sound.
Auto Genre Picture Mode
BRAVIA automatically switches into Game mode to minimise input lag and make the action more responsive. When watching movies on PlayStation5® consoles, it switches back to Standard Mode to focus on picture processing for more expressive scenes.
Connect Bluetooth compatible devices to your TV for easy wire-free entertainment. Pair your Bluetooth headphones or earphones with BRAVIA and enjoy TV shows and music in your favourite place - without any disturbances or interruptions.
Sit back and enjoy an enthralling viewing experience. Our unique ambient optimisation technology with light sensor automatically adjusts picture and sound to your environment.
On conventional TVs, brightness stays the same regardless of light in a room, resulting in pictures that are too dark or bright. This TV includes a light sensor that optimises picture brightness to room conditions, boosting brightness in light rooms and reducing it in dark ones so you get the perfect view.
Sound Optimisation for Your Room
Sound experience can change depending on your room environment. Curtains, for example, absorb sound while objects in front of the TV can disturb the passage of sound, compromising the quality of what you hear. This TV detects objects and reproduces sound that’s enhanced and optimised to your room.
Works with Bravia Cam
Connect your BRAVIA TV with BRAVIA CAM, sold separately, for an even more immersive viewing experience. BRAVIA CAM recognises where you are in the room and how far you are from the TV, then adjusts sound and picture settings so they're just right. You can also enjoy an array of fun new TV experiences with BRAVIA CAM including gesture controls, video chat and many more.

As the bezel is extremely narrow, your eyes naturally focus on the picture, not what's around it.
2-Way Multi-Position Stand
A versatile 2-way stand gives you the choice of a standard setting that focuses you on the picture or a narrow setting for smaller shelves.
Living Decor turns your TV into an essential part of your living space with on screen artwork, personal photos, screensaver themes and clock functions.
Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos
